For many years now, people have been faithfully watching a Japanese anime show called Highschool DxD. As a matter of fact, that show has aired for four seasons now and it has developed an extremely dedicated fan following that rivals virtually anything else that’s out there in anime. There was a pretty long gap between the end of season four and the current date, and this had a lot of fans growing more and more anxious about whether or not there would be a season five. Understandably, they were growing weary and wondering what was taking so long and why there was no news that was coming down the pipe.
Finally, they have some answers. As it turns out, the studio that had produced the previous four seasons will no longer be involved with the anime show in any capacity. That was precisely the reason for the long break between season four and any news of a season five, not to mention the distinct lack of news. Nobody really wanted to say anything until things were ironed out and the project was definitely going to happen. Therefore, everyone stopped talking about the project at all as opposed to putting false information out there. Fortunately, most of that has been ironed out now and it is definitely going to happen. An exact date hasn’t been determined, but it won’t be more than a couple of months before fans can again watch this show and enjoy it for themselves.
One of the reasons that a decision was made to move to a different studio was because those responsible for the show wanted to follow the graphic novels that it is based on much more closely than the previous studio had been. As a matter of fact, over the previous four seasons that studio had gotten further and further away from the novels and had basically started creating its own story. Things can get a little bit dicey here because the show has been very popular with fans. That being said, the graphic novels are also extremely popular. While there has been a dedicated fan following, many people have expressed frustration over the fact that reading the novels and watching the show of the same name is basically like being exposed to two completely different things. Therefore, a decision to change production companies was made.
While the new studio isn’t revealing everything just yet, they have made it widely known that they are following the novels to the letter, basically scrapping many of the aspects of the story from the previous four seasons of the show and taking things back to their roots. This has some fans feeling a little apprehensive, mainly because they just don’t know exactly what to expect. However, they do know that leaving the story in the hands of the original novel is something that will have good results so the majority of them are anxiously anticipating season five.
Of course, there’s no doubt that there will be a certain number of fans that don’t like the fact that changes are being made and the show will lose some fans and gain others. For years, there have been some individuals that wouldn’t watch the show because it didn’t follow the novels closely enough. In the end, it really comes down to a matter of personal preferences. It’s fairly safe to say that the overwhelming majority of people that have become fans of the show will continue to watch and will at least give it a chance. It’s also safe to say that once they give it that chance, they will likely become engrossed in the story is all over again, as the source material is perfectly capable of drawing people in and keeping their attention in its own rite.
Fortunately, it doesn’t look like anyone will have to wait all that long to see things for themselves and decide how they feel about the new season. It shouldn’t be more than a few months before it’s released and at that time, everybody gets the chance to watch a show that feels like an old friend, yet there’s something about if that’s very new and fresh at the same time. That fact alone should be enough to make most people decide to tune in.
